CAMARADERIE AND STAFF APPRECIATION


Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her? Dad: That happens in most countries, son.

Every year I go to a special event that I enjoy very much. It is the one time I really want to be somewhere, and that is called ‘STAFF APPRECIATION DAY’. It is help by AHRC Suffolk, and it is to celebrate the years of longevity by those dedicated workers who have put in at least 5 years of service to the agency.

The name of the agency: is The Association for Habilitation and Residential Care, and that pretty well describes what the agency is all about.  It is for people with developmental disabilities and the name transcends the objective of the agency.

At the event of which I speak, it is held in a catering hall of some quality and it is well attended. This year there were people celebrating their 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and one celebrating 35 years of continuous service to the agency.


The thing that amazed me was the amount of camaraderie there seems to have been as they awarded gifts for their service. The cheering and applauding for each other was extraordinary and heart felt, the joy for each other highlighted what I think was a great amount of leadership and vision by those that administer to the agency, the pilots so to speak. Never has morale been so high, and so infectious as it has been under the stewardship of two people, Bill Leonardi and Lisa Bockeman, two extremely capable leaders, that have made the agency what it is. The proof is in the pudding. The board of directors certainly made the right decision in hiring them 4 years ago.
